  • Brilliant battle, very strategic, and extremely entertaining.

    9.1
    Up next, Sano vs. Ueki. While Sano's ability to change clothes into steel doesn't sound like it's any match against Ueki's sacred treasures, he has mastered his ability to enable him to be not only the third strongest candidate in this tournament, but also the rank of an 8 star heavenly being! The battle went back and forth with each fighter using different tactics and strategies to throw off their opponent off the ring and into the magma, but their techniques and powers were just on the same level. However, it was Ueki who shined, creating a constructive plan that eventually had Sano falling over the top of the cliff. He was going to lose anyways, but Karlpaccho tells him that Inumaru is going to die if he loses on purpose. He reveals to him that a pentagon like bug is sleeping on his back, and it has the ability to suck all the blood within its prey in an instant. Only Karlpaccho can stop or start it.



    This was just one of the best overall fights I have seen in any shounen. Not only was it spectacular to watch, but the different strategies are just so unique and amazing. What's even better is that it not only has a couple of strategies, but it has a handful, each rather deep and amazing. What adds to them is how unique each fighter incorporates their abilities with their tactics. While the production values don't exactly add up to the amazing Naruto vs. Sasuke or Kenshin vs. Saito fights, it was still a great watch if you're just looking for action, and it's an even better watch if you were looking out for strategy. Really, if you can make one single fight consistently good throughout the course of the episode, then you know it's a great fight. While it did seem like the battle ended because of Ueki's superior tactic, thanks to Inumaru's bug, it seems like we'll be seeing more fighting between these two! Though that is pretty low; forcing a guy to change them because they threatened an important person to him. Oh well, thanks to that bug, we got to see a fantastic fight!moreless

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (2)

    • Karlpaccho reveals the reason why Sano joined Robert's Ten.

      Karlpaccho got his hands on a bug known as the Death Pentagon from Margaret, Robert's God Candidate. Karlpaccho then secretly placed it on the back of Inumaru's neck. The Death Pentagon is currently sleeping on Inumaru's neck, and when Karlpaccho gives the word, the insect will wake up and immediately suck all of the blood out of Inumaru's body.

      So, Sano agreed to join the Ten. If he took out 20 power-users, then the Ten will take the Death Pentagon off of Inumaru.

    • Rules of the Rope-Jumping Field:

      - Players fight upon a platform with a giant jump rope on the field.
      - Whenever there is vibration in the ground, the jump rope starts moving. The more vibration there is one the ground, the faster the jump rope goes. So, once the players jump, they can't stop. But the jump rope will stop if there is no vibrations in the ground.
      - Players win the battle by either TKO or ring-out.
